contemporary art - The term contemporary describes the most recent art, in this case as distinguished from modern art, which is generally considered to have lost its dominance in the mid-1950's.

content - As opposed to subject matter, content is the "meaning" of the artwork, e.g., in Moby Dick, the subject matter is a man versus a whale; the content is a complex system of symbols, metaphors, etc. describing man's existence and nature.

contour - The outer edge of forms which implies three dimensions, in contrast to an outline, which is a boundary of two-dimensional, flat form. Also, a type of line drawing which captures this three-dimensional outer edge, with its fullness and recession of form.

contrapposto - (pronounced con-tra-pos-to) - Italian term, meaning to represent freedom of movement within a figure, as in ancient Greek sculpture, the parts being in asymmetrical relationship to one another, usually where the hips and legs twist in one direction, and the chest and shoulders in another.

Chris Smith is a visual artist living in San Diego California. Born in Bend Oregon, Chris started his art career as a street artist. With street art, Chris was able to relay a message and have a voice while doing something he loved. After moving to San Diego in 2010, Chris started experimenting with acrylic paint. After painting his first abstract piece, he was obsessed and hasn't stopped since. 


"I Paint because I must, it's a necessity. If I were the last person on earth, I would still paint every single day" - Chris Smith
